What's the general opinion on The Two Doctors, here and in the wider fanbase? I watched it earlier and I thought it was very good. I really like the Sixth Doctor, he's funny, engaging and pretty badass! He's not afraid of getting stuck in to be fair! Jamie and Peri were already my favourite companions from the Classic series from what I've seen so this story was good for me aha! Jamie's badass and I really, really like Peri, she's clever and really likeable in my opinion. This is one of the few Classic stories to really keep hold of my attention, so it's my favourite of what I've seen most definitely. I really enjoyed it.

@SANTA-ran17To be fair, just because someone doesn't want to write a long comment like Yael just did, doesn't mean their opinions shouldn't be taken seriously. I mean, if someone just comments "I love Clara she's awesome" does that mean their opinion shouldn't be taken seriously because they haven't argued why they think she is?

His Doctor will always hold a special place in my heart for a number of reasons, and I'll never forget him. I was devastated when he left and I'll be honest, it really surprised me just how much I've missed him since he regenerated! He is and always will be my Doctor, such a legend and an utter hero. :)

@TheCyberDoctor @supermoff @LGwalchmai95 @The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing I love how he's done that. There's SO many gaps to have some Matt Smith stories in the future for audios and stuff, as it was well established that he wandered off and had adventures while the Ponds slept, and there's the time after The God Complex when the Ponds were at home and coming in and out during Series 7. There's the time between Wedding and Wardrobe and there's Trenzalore, as well as the gaps between when he drops Clara off and picks her up again! Trenzalore has helped Matt come back in the future, as it doesn't matter if he's uch older looking, as they can just be like "Oh I've been on Trenzalore for 400 years" yadda yadda yadda. And there's gaps for Clara too, like when she's not travelling with the Doctor, who knows what could have happened that she forgot and the stuff mentioned by others. There's loads, I love how Moffat's done that!

@supermoff @TheCyberDoctor @The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing I've always thought she was fully qualified in The Bells of Saint John and was going travelling (to the places in the 101 places to see book) on a gap year or something before starting work, and then she met the Doctor and went travelling the universe instead, and decided she wanted to start work and got a job as a teacher shortly before The Day of the Doctor. Headcannon I think it's called!
@The Lazy Cat is Sleep Typing Hang on, so proper Clara Oswald was born on the 23rd Novenmber? Clara Oswin Oswald was on born 23rd November too! No clue about Oswin, but do you think all of Clara's echoes were born on 23rd November? It's a weird coincidence!

@YaelMoise @LGwalchmai95 I'm just saying it's been good for Jenna, having so much stuff to do.
4 days, 11 hours ago on A Hint on Jenna Coleman’s Future?
Jenna really joined the show at the perfect time, look at how much she's done! She's worked with 4 Doctor's, been involved in the 50th anniversary, been in a regeneration story and got to work with people like Michelle Gomez, Keeley Hawes, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi, Warwick Davis, Rachael Sterling and Diana Rigg just to name a few! She's died twice, jumped into the Doctor's time stream, seen all his faces, inspired him as a child, managed to swing the Doctor some more lives, met Robin Hood and had a pop at the Sheriff of Nottingham! Plus more! She's done loads, she really joined at a great time, Moffat's given her a lot to do!
Is it bad that I still cannot decide whether I like Missy or not? I mean, the whole giving the Doctor an army thing, while I could kind of see what she her intentions were and what her end game was, it just fell really flat, and within the space of a second removed any threat from the episode, it was like Donna flicking a switch as the rels/seconds/whateverDavrosusestomeasuretime went down to one. She was very John Simm-like, and that smile she gave when she told Osgood she was going to kill her is really chilling, but then the music that played after she offed her kind of killed the scene for me. I get that it was to show how Missy thinks of it, that it's nothing, and to show us that she's batcrap crazy, but still, it just didn't seem to fit given that a character who quite a lot of people liked had just been murdered, it felt like it was turned into a bit of a joke. And part of me just feels like it's treading the same ground, Missy didn't feel particularly new, refreshing etc to me, there was a sense of familiarity with her. I don't know, because I do generally like that kind of villain, who deceptively cold and brutal, she could make you trust her and then just kill you without a second thought, but it just feels too familiar now for me personally, like we're treading old ground. Nothing against Gomez though, she did a stellar job to be fair to her. I'm just a bit torn on whether I like the character or not, I can't make up my mind whether I like her or not. And, hand on heart, I have absolutely no problem with a woman playing the Master (sorry John!); while there is an element of it being done for the shock factor, it was something that has been previously established (that Time Lords/Ladies can change genders), and, to be honest, didn't really faze me. I just kind of accepted it straight away, that's just me though, and I can understand why you and others could potentially have issues with it. Which is fine, if we all have the same opinions life would be a bit dull! So yeah, just kinda writing the thoughts as the pop into my head; this post is very much a made it up as I went along post so there's no real structure aha! I can't decide whether I like Missy or not, but I have no qualms about a woman getting the part of the Master.
5 days ago on Unpopular Opinion: Missy the Master
I've been running all my lives, through time and space. Every second of every minute of every day for over 900 years. I fought for peace in a universe at war. Now the time has come to face the choices I've made in the name of the Doctor. Our future depends on one single moment of one impossible day, the day I've been running from all my life; The day of the Doctor.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hRy2N2CMhQ I love this trailer. My word it's still just as epic now as it was when it was released over a year ago! It got me so excited for The Day of the Doctor, and sets it up perfectly. It's visually stunning, all the shots are amazing and such high quality; it's really cool to see Hartnell's Doctor in such good quality. I love the shot with Sarah Jane holding the ball, it zooms into the ball which has Pertwee and the Master sword fighting, and when it pans out again it's Clara there now. I love how it's just filled to the brim with nods to the show's first 50 years (though some people fair better than others!), even just tiny objects floating around, things written on signs and stuff, like the time and date the show started, that may have been too obscure to notice on first go, as it all goes so quick; the detail that went into it is simply awesome! Matt Smith's voice over is truly brilliant too, he has a great voice for it. I love the confidence, and the little bit of cheekiness when he says "The day of the Doctor", the way he delivers it and the look on his face just brings a smile to mine. But the music, just wow! The music is absolutely outstanding! It's tense, engaging and just flat out amazing. It suits everything that goes on around it perfectly, I can't really thing of anything to say other than to just blindly say how amazing it is aha! This whole trailer is amazing; it's tense, grabs your attention, fan pleasing (there's something for everyone here!) and just stunning in every way. It still gives me goosebumps to this day, and always makes me want to watch The Day of the Doctor immediately! I love it! :)

@NotsoSmartguy I love Amy and Rory, their relationship developed brilliantly, and was terrifically handled I think. It wasn't always perfect, but you could tell they loved each other, and eventually Amy caught up to him and got to the same position as him in terms of being prepared to settle down and "grow up" as it were. I'm a bit biased because I absolutely love both characters, but I think their relationship was brilliant, and extremely well done by Moffat.

I'd say one of Moffat's best twists was killing Clara in The Snowmen, and Oswin in Asylum of the Daleks, especially the Christmas one though. I really didn't see that coming! It was a great twist that really got me excited for and set up the next part of series seven briilliantly.

While I wouldn't call myself a huge Series 8 fan, I can't deny that Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi have both been magnificent this series, and have really saved a few of these episodes for me personally. They've both given consistently high performances, and are both huge factors in this series' success in my opinion. They've both been at the top of their game. Huge props to the both of them.

1 week, 3 days ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 7
Bad Wolf was just on on Watch, and I haven't seen it for a bit, and I forgot how good it is! I love the grim twists on modern game shows, really clever. "There's Call My Bluff, with real guns. Countdown, where you've got thirty seconds to stop the bomb going off. Ground Force, which is a nasty one. You get turned into compost. Er, Wipeout, speaks for itself. Oh, and Stars In Their Eyes. Literally, stars in their eyes. If you don't sing, you get blinded." XD How grim, yet quite funny to hear, though it wouldn't be funny to watch!
The ideas in the episode, and the whole episode itself, feel really unique and weird, in a good way. Those two people working for Bad Wolf Corporation are really evil, the sadistic smiles on their faces when she whispers "I don't think she's been human for years." is really evil! It's a really strange thing to smile about!
I love the Doctor, Jack and Rose's reactions to being in their respective game shows; the Doctor's just not having any of it "You have got to be kidding!" XD, Rose's initial reaction is fun, she just doesn't take any of it seriously until the first contestant gets 'disintegrated". Jack's just put in the one game show that suits his character to a tee, and he's hilarious throughout, and I like how he just rolls with it. I'm still sad that Lynda dies in the next episode, she was really nice, and Jo Joyner is a great actress.
I love the Doctor's reaction to Rose's 'death'. His stunned silence just sells it. I also like how the first contestant to get disintegrated's scene was done. I like how the music just cuts, and it's silent, that's when we stop messing around and it gets serious. I also like how the Doctor and Jack are sentenced to the Lunar Penal Coloney. The tie in with The Long Game is very good, that it's the Doctor's fault that this has happened. Especially aster he was being quite smug talking about it before.
The reveal of it being a transporter and not a disintegrator was very well done; I remember being really surprised the first time I watched it! The cliffhanger's pretty epic too, which is always to be expected from RTD to be fair to him. The reveal of the Daleks is really well executed, and the Doctor's defiant "No" speech at the end is awesome. A very Doctory thing to do, and really helps you to get behind him, even though you already are!
The acting is top notch too; Eccleston is amazing, as he always was as the Doctor, he always gave a consistently high level of performance, and this was no exception. Billie Piper was terrific as Rose, as per, though she didn't really get much to do in this part, but what she had to do she did very well. John was as hilarious and badass as ever as Captain Jack too. Jo Joyner was great and introduced us to and made us love her sympathetic, sweet character, Paterson Joseph gave a good performance as the understandably selfish Rodrick, and Martha Cope was really good as the Controller, who I felt sorry for and it was sad when she died, she's a tragic character who really got a rough ride. There's also great music to be heard, and the direction is on point too, the episode is very appealing visually.
So overall, this episode is great, and sets up the next part brilliantly. It hits all the right notes and is inventive, clever and just all round entertaining. Bad Wolf is really, really, awesome. It has some really clever, wacky ideas, is terrifically paced and introduces some good characters, and one awesome one. It develops its main characters well, and gives them all a chance to shine. I love the game shows and the whole Satellite 5 thing too. A brilliant episode that I thought I'd write a comment about as I haven't really done one about this episode before, so I thought I'd show it some love. :)

This finale is one of those stories that just showcases what Matt's Doctor is alll about. We see just about every side to his character here in some way and his performance is brilliant. He was exceptional at the speeches, he could shout you down and then talk so softly and beautifully. That stories speech is really moving, and we see how old and tired the Doctor is. :)

love the Doctor’s first scene with Rory, when he slowly realises he’s alive. I love how straight Rory plays it, he’s so calm.
And then there are the top lines of;
Rory, I'm not trying to be rude, but you died.
Rory: Yeah, I know. I was there. ------------
The Doctor: Well, I died and turned into a Roman. It's very distracting.
Always makes me laugh that does. I love this finale; all actors are on such top
form. It’s a very clever, timey-wimey two parter. I like how the first part is
a big epic set up, giving us some answers and ending on a whopper of a
cliffhanger. I still remember being really surprised and confused when the
Pandorica opened and it was empty aha! And then The Big Bang was more low key
and more of a character piece. I love how clever the Doctor is, in that he’s
already worked out how he’s going to escape being erased before he’s even made
that really emotional speech. That speech is beautiful; Matt captures the old
man of the Doctor brilliantly, as he always did. It was clever to do the
something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue thing I
think. All the cast gel together so well, and have amazing chemistry. This is a
great finale to a great series, one of the absolute best stories. It tells a
great story, is well paced and all round entertaining.
I have more but I won't go there. Plus there's this door in my face and I don't like to shout! ;)

John Simm by a gazillion miles! His Master is absolutely brilliant; batcrap crazy by is well rounded and has such depth. He's hilarious, brilliant with Tennant's Doctor and was really quite evil too! Plus I love John Simm, he's an amazing, incredibly versatile actor and I think he played the Master awesomely. He also had brilliant chemistry with David Tennant. He gets my vote. :)
@NotsoSmartguy @LGwalchmai95But she still didn't die! Se left the episode breathing and well. Rationalise it whichever way you want, but she still didn't die. RTD played jump rope with that line twice.
1 week, 6 days ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 4
@NotsoSmartguy @LGwalchmai95 She had her memory wiped, she didn't die! Sure, she lost her memory and a chunk of her life, but she didn't die. I died as much as Donna did in this finale! XD
The thing that irks me when having a good old rewatch of this finale and the Series 2 one is that in both we have announcements/prophecies that a companion will die, and then they don't die. It doesn't sit well with me really; if you're making a song and dance about a companion dying, at least have the stones to actually kill them!
@Antee991166 @LGwalchmai95I think she was right, she didn't have the knowledge of other species and the confidence in his dealings with them like the Doctor did. And it's like Matt's Doctor said "Leaving is good, never coming back is better."
Harriet: Harriet Jones. Former
Dalek: Yes, we know who you are.
Harriet: Oh, you know nothing of
any human, and that will be your downfall.
love that that joke even extended to the Daleks! XD This was a great ending for
Harriet Jones, she was a good character who was judged by the Doctor and
blacklisted by him for doing one thing he disagreed with. But she died
sacrificing herself to get him to Earth. She said there would come a time when
he wouldn’t be there, and she was right, and it meant she had to make the
ultimate sacrifice to save the world. Harriet was a very good character,
unfairly treated in my opinion. Though, as you say, it had to happen for the Doctor to be able to stop the Daleks in the end. I think this finale is good, it has some good ideas and is very dark in places. I liked Mickey's ending, returning to our universe after his Gran died in Pete's World. It was nice to see he had finally moved on from Rose and wanted to get on with his life. I love Mickey, I wish he had much more screen time, and a lot more respect from Tennant's Doctor.
As soon as Handles entered the TARDIS he knew, he would beheading for trouble....

@Mark McCullough @The Administrator is Missy Claus! Is The Santa Pit the title for this years Christmas Special? ;)
Eccleston is such an amazing Doctor, he just captured the character perfectly, and played the war torn Doctor absolutely perfectly. He's fantastic here, going through such a range of emotions. I love his reaction to Rose's 'death'; his silence, and the look on his face just say it all. The episode is really high quality, Rose's speech about the Doctor to Jackie is really good, and Lynda was a good, fun character and I was sad she died. The Daleks were at their merciless best here, going down instead of up just to kill those innocent people was just brutal. I love how Eccleston's Doctor shows full growth by not sacrificing the Earth, he can't make that decision again. I love his regeneration scene to, he goes out on such a high. I love how he is clearly scared about the change that is to come, and the fact he's going to be rewritten any second and he doesn't know what will happen, but he puts on a brave face for his friend, and tries to get her ready for the change to. And one of the saddest Doctor's goes out with a great big grin on his face. I love this finale, it's a fantastic end for a fantastic Doctor, very well written, clever and gripping, and it gives Eccleston and his Doctor the exit they deserved. Top article :)
